Originally equipped with a 4.5-liter engine developing 219 horsepower in North America, the 928 has received several notable upgrades throughout its lifetime, included a quick switch from mechanical to electronic fuel injection in the United States only three years after its unveiling.

The 1982 Porsche 928 that you see here is believed to be one of the few all-original examples still alive these days, coming in a surprising condition despite sitting in storage for approximately 20 years.

According to the owner of the car, who is now trying to sell the Porsche on eBay, this 928 has been off the road since 2001 and has never been hit, though it does come with a few scratches “from storage.

At first glance, everything does seem to be in good condition, and the seller claims they specifically didn’t clean or detail the car to provide the new owner with the opportunity of giving this Porsche a second chance.

No attempt has been made to start the engine either, but we’re being told the “car ran and drove excellent with no issues before being stored in an enclosed garage.

The best of all is the Porsche 928 comes with everything original (including the paint, the engine, and the interior) and zero rust, so theoretically, if you’re planning to bring it back to new-car condition, this shouldn’t be too hard.

The odometer indicates no less than 209,000 miles (336,335 km), which means the car has been driven for some 11,000 miles (17,702 km) every year before eventually ending up in the garage the owner claims it was rescued from.

The 928 is auctioned off on eBay by seller shelbob, and the highest bid at the time of writing is $2,025.
